    Had a couple of these guys so I thought I'd add my take on this character. We all know how cool a black repaint can be, but I decided to be different. I used a dark gray as the base color and accenting with metallic purple and different shades of silver. I also didn't want to use the real chest emblem since the regular version doesn't have that true flame decal either. I tried to make the emblem a little more evil looking. I turned the bow weapon into hand guns witch fit in the gap in alt mode to become exhausts. Had fun working on this guy since I hit a wall with my other WIPs. Comments and criticisms always welcomed.

    Very very nice, if I didn't dislike the head mold so much..
    However the stache there actually fills in that big blank spot on his face nicely to where it looks buyable.

    Awesome paintjob! Is it just me, or does his mustache look like upside-down Kamina glasses, lol.

    Paint looks nice. I like that shade. Face looks interesting. Bow to guns/exhaust is smashing!
    Well done.

    Was planning a similar mod to the guns myself, glad to see someone has done it and it works so well. I dig the colour choices, and I can't help but lol at the 'tache.

    Nice work there.

    As I was planning on modding this same figure, any tips on rub spots? What paints do you use?
